This is a no-brainer and bad implementation, but shows it's obviously right
wrt locking. (pseudocode, I ignored the uaccess details and all the other not
relevant things)

sys_rmdir(path)
{
char buf[PAGE_SIZE]

err = sys_getcwd(buf, PAGE_SIZE)
if (err)
goto out

if (!memcmp(path, ".", 2))
path = buf
err = 2_4_0_sys_rmdir(path)

out:
return err
}

Optimizing things just a little more as _worse_ the overhead of supporting
`rmdir .` can be reduced to a memcmp(name, ".") plus and out of line jump and I
don't see a performance problem with that.

Could you enlight me on where's the locking pain?
